Basing their design on official leaks and patents, the folks of T3 came up with a very interesting mockup for the Samsung Galaxy Gear. The smartwatch is expected to be unveiled early next month at IFA 2013, but till then we’ve got this render and also the video below.
The Samsung smartwatch concept involves a 3.5 inch LCD extended screen and a 2 inch LCD watch mode screen. The device runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, it’s water resistant and comes with NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, S Voice and S Health. There’s also Facebook and Twitter integration and 4 days of battery life are provided here.
You can get microUSB charging and the Samsung Galaxy Gear will easily connect to your Samsung phone and tablet and interact with them. We’ve got a Menu and Back button included here, but I can’t tell if they’re capacitive or not. You can receive and respond to text straight from the watch and you can get the niftiest feature in S Health here: a pedometer. When extended, the device looks like a slimmer and longer phone. What do you make of it?
